I just got a simple runout sensor. Now I need to decide whether to connect it to my cr-10 motherboard or octoprint. Connecting to octoprint would be the simplest since I wouldn't have to update firmware in the motherboard. But I have a question.
I have noticed in the past that when I pause a print it can take a long time for the printer to finsh it's buffered commands. E.g. when it is printing long lines and each command takes a while. I'm worried that it will continue to consume filament, maybe even more than is left. Would a M600 command from octoprint have this problem?
Would this problem be the same if the sensor was connected directly to the motherboard? Any recommendations?
